Leave a comment

Nothing can match the love of a devoted dog.  This cute pup was overwhelmed with joy after seeing her owner for the first time in two years — so excited, in fact, that she briefly passed out like a teenager seeing the Beatles in the ’60s.  Don’t worry, though; the dog’s owner, Rebecca Ehalt, says that the dog was checked out by a vet and is completely fine.

Video: Pets Interrupting Yoga

Leave a comment

If yoga is about controlling the mind and body, there is no greater test than practicing with a dog or cat on the loose.  As Danielle Cuccio, a yoga instructor and owner of two pugs tells us, “They think it’s playtime or that it’s some kind of game. They think, ‘Mommy is on our level … Lets get her!’ They actually challenge me to stay balanced in a pose so I think it makes me stronger.”  Watch our compilation above and see why every yogi should own a pet for the ultimate yoga challenge.

Pigs may not fly yet, but it seems dogs have conquered the skies.  Whisper has earned the distinction of the world’s first BASE jumping dog. Rock climber Dean Potter strapped his pooch onto his back while before jumping from a 13,000-foot mountain peak called The Eiger in Switzerland. Potter captured his pup’s less-than-enthusiastic reaction with a GoPro.
